Preston Illustrator’s Tokyo Jo print raises money for children’s charity
A Preston illustrator is selling prints from the old Preston nightclub which was destroyed by fire last week, with proceeds going to charity.
David Robinson is selling a limited edition of 250 signed and numbered copies of his Tokyo Jo print.
As David is part of the Kidz 4 Kidz committee, he will donate the proceeds from the sale to the volunteer-run performing arts company that gives children from all walks of life the opportunity to participate in theater productions.
It is aiming to raise at least £7,500 for an all-terrain adaptable wheelchair for a six-year-old boy called Alex who was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy type 2 (SMA2) in 2017.

SMA2 is a genetic neuromuscular disease that affects nerve cells that control voluntary muscles.
The wheelchair will cost a total of £14,500 and can be used for the rest of Alex’s life because as he grows the chair can be adapted to his height and build.
To purchase the prints, visit the Dave Rob Shop and to learn more about crowdfunding to help Alex, visit the Just Giving website.
